Storyline

DCI Jericho is a brilliant detective and a darling of the media. However, he is haunted by the memories of his father, a policeman whose murder Jericho witnessed as a boy. Never married, and alone since his childhood sweetheart left him for another during WWII, Jericho is obsessed with his work at Scotland Yard. Yet, he finds himself drawn to his beautiful French neighbor Juliette - a prostitute with a tortured past. Set amidst the social upheaval of post-war 1950s London, Jericho unravels headline-grabbing mysteries. His diligent team includes faithful friend and colleague Detective Sergeant Clive Harvey and the ambitious young Detective Constable John Caldicott, whose warm relationship with his fiancÈe starkly contrasts Jericho's lonely nighttime vigils.

Brilliant!
29 November 2010 | by See all my reviews

I have just seen the last episode here in Sweden. A pity they did not continue with a second season. I especially thought it was interesting not only because he solves crimes in the late 50's but also that he has to battle corrupt policemen in Scotland Yard and at the same time wants to have an relation with a prostitute (witch would end his career in the force); this adds multiple dimensions to this drama and sets it, in my opinion, apart from other British TV-detective stories.

You get a feel for the atmosphere of 1950's London. My mother lived there for a number of years in her youth, in the beginning of 1960's and I have heard many stories about life in that city. The buses you could catch in the middle of any street, the thick fog that made it impossible to be outside etc.

It is a "must see" for all who like dramas like Midsomer Murders and Foyle's War. I can only hope they resurrect the series in the future, but sadly I do not think this will happen. This should however not discourage others from seeing it since all episodes ends with a conclusion of "who done it".
